We’ve seen what Storm Arwen can do with 50 or more people stuck in the UK’s highest pub for three days over the weekend. Storm Arwen has been deemed by Network Rail Scotland as ‘one of the most challenging storms in recent memory’.

James Madden from Exacta Weather has revealed he believes this could well continue into January. Speaking with The Mirror, he said: “Snow on Christmas day is more likely in the north of the country. We can’t rule out festive snow anywhere.

According to Met Office’s Tom Morgan, it was an ‘arctic shot’ that caused the sudden temperature drop. There have been warnings of widespread frost that will make driving hazardous and ice-covered pavements/ The good news is that milder weather is expected for the week with temperatures set to plunge at the weekend once more.

Weather forecasters warned of further storms, Jim Dale, of British Weather Services, said: “The potential is there for a run of storms through the festive season and perhaps beyond.”
